Hepatitis C Drug Trials

Hepatitis C Drug Trials Linked to Serious Injuries and Deaths

The promise of new Hepatitis C treatment options leads thousands of HCV sufferers to sign up for drug trials each year. Unfortunately, many of the experimental drugs in clinical development can cause severe and life-threatening side effects. And while patients often sign consent forms prior to entering these trials, they are not always warned of all potential dangers.

SERIOUS RISKS MAY HAVE BEEN HIDDEN FROM HEP C TRIAL PARTICIPANTS

Patients are not always informed of all the potential risks and long-term effects of participating in a drug trial. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Did you understand all the trial enrollment paperwork you signed?
  • Were you confused by the consent forms?
  • Did you have lingering questions about side effects?
  • Did your doctor fail to explain all the possible outcomes of the trial?
  • Were you told you had a problem and then told something different by another doctor?
  • Were you referred to several doctors during your initial treatment and/or after the trial?
